I agree. I'd love to live someplace like Canada where I can go to a mall or a movie theater or a church or an outdoor music concert, and my kid can go to school without worrying if there's going to be a shooting today.


So, what's stopping you? Seriously.

What. Is. Stopping. You.?

Paranoid is not logical. People need to keep their senses about them. It's imperative.

At a stretch Pi certainly does look gun like .

My recommendation is to preface all math
symbols with wholesome words i.e Apple Pi
Sweet potato square root .. etc


I'm think Pi looks like Trump's hair...

You haven't read the whole thread, have you?

Nobody here is paying attention. Several posters have pointed out that the kid said something more than just "this square root symbol looks like a gun". We don't know what he said because it hasn't been released. The sheriff said that it was enough for him to send out a couple of deputies to the kid's house to ask a few questions. They did that and ascertained he wasn't a true threat.

We don't know what was said, so how could we make a judgement call that it was the "tiniest thing"?

Was clearly stated the house was searched, so there's that......I don't buy the story you believe. As you have fairly stated we don't know the exact facts in this case...so we will see, hopefully not too late.

Chadwickus posted another article that says differently.


The whole notion that there was a SWAT raid over a math symbol is absurd," Hebert told PJM. "I got a call from a KPLC that they had a serious threat of a shooting at the school, so we went to the house to verify. There was no search warrant, we just sent two [deputies] to knock on the door," chuckled Hebert. "This is a small parish and everybody knows everybody and we found out very quickly there was no crime and no threat."

I'm still not sure which is more absurd:

1. The notion that a square root sign led to this in the first place on many levels.

2. The notion that you are so paranoid you will claim to live in terrible fear.

1. But apparently it wasn’t just the square root sign that led to the police checking the kid out.

2. You mean like the paranoid fear you guys have of a refugee killing everyone when refugees haven’t killed anyone here in how long? Or the paranoid fear you guys have that some guy will dress like a woman and sneak into the girl’s room to peak or rape, so we can’t let law abiding trans people use the public restroom that fits them best?

Pot; kettle - you know the drill.

Thank the media for the absurd amount of hysteria.

Doesn't change the fact someone called the police about a math symbol and the police investigated and searched a kids house because of.... A frigging math symbol.

Nope. That’s not the fact. The fact is several kids were talking about how the symbol looked like a gun. Several kids weren’t checked out. Only one kid was checked out, because he said something else during the conversation. What he said exactly - we don’t know.

The other fact is, according to the sheriff, the kid’s house was not searched. The kid was questioned and deemed not to be a threat.

What are you on about, I'm not wrong .

I have a question for you...

1. Did the police investigate the use of a math symbol used in a classroom at school?

Not according to the sheriff in charge. Did you read the article I linked from Chadwickus?

That's not fact.

Gossiping and Chinese whispers is what made someone call the cops.

A bit of due diligence was done and the rest is media hype.

Yep, Gossip, Chinese whispers and a math symbol.

I know its pretty shi**y to be worried you are going to be shot up every time you go out in public these days. That much I know.

And that's not really something to worry about, is it? What are the odds of it happening to you?

I was born and raised in an area with very, very high incidences of gang violence. At the hospital, we joked that Friday and Saturday nights in the ER were the Guns and Knives Club. There wasn't a weekend that went by were there wasn't a stabbing or shooting or someone getting the stuffing beat out of him over drugs or gang activity. Despite that, I never once feared for my life when out and about.

Living in fear of something happening where the odds are unlikely is no way to live. For every gun shooting in a school in the US, there are thousands and thousands of schools nationwide where nothing at all happens. You're more likely to get hit crossing the street on foot, or of having a car accident. Hell, even taking a shower is far more dangerous because slips in the tub is one of the leading causes of accidental death in the home.

I'll be waiting for the shooter to run out of bullets, or to shoot themselves in the face before law enforcement steps in.
